Some thoughts on motor control design from our head of design
“As Head of Design for Zikodrive, I take a personal pride in the design work we carry out. I enjoy working with clients to understand their needs and requirements and to help them achieve the success they want. I have personally worked in the motor control industry now for over 10 years, starting out as a sales engineer after leaving university and developing my career further until I co-founded Zikodrive several years ago. Our success has been built on a combination of personalised customer service, an emphasis on quality and an empathetic approach to our customer’s needs.
Our team always goes the extra mile and we take a huge pride in seeing projects succeed to the point that our customers are selling hundreds or thousands of products which we (in our own small way) helped to make possible.

Our areas of expertise
“To get straight to the point, our main areas of expertise are in low power (<2KW) stepper and brushless motor control. We have carried out a range of projects in these areas including sensorless brushless DC, sensored brushless DC, stepper controllers and a range of other features. Our only real involvement with brushed DC motors has been in relation to turntable applications.
All that being said, I would not want any prospective customers to not get in touch with us because we hadn’t already completed a project similar to the one they are working on. If all we ever did was repeat things we have previously done then life would become somewhat dreary! We love a challenge and I know Graham (Head of Design) in particular is always keen to develop our knowledge.
One thing I would say is not to forget to have a look at our standard range of controllers as we are continually updating those and we can always spend some time developing a custom programme for one of these. It may save you some time and money.
The final thing I would add is that we will always do our utmost to deliver fairness and value for money. We try and take time to go through specifications with you in order to understand exactly what you want and to ensure that we can deliver it.
Any questions you want answering please just give us a call or send us an email.”
